I'm almost 26 weeks now with Baby #2, and the pregnancy is going really well. I'm so thankful for that! This baby boy is growing and measured in the 90th percentile on a growth ultrasound a couple of weeks ago. I love how easy it is to wear lots of non-maternity dresses, but I am for sure wearing all maternity shirts and pants.
I'm feeling pretty good. The only complaints I have are the occasional reflux (Zantac and Tums are amazing) and some back pain after a busy day. I had one night where I felt a little tightening in my tummy, but I had been pretty active. The pain I had when walking has gone (praise the Lord) so Wilson and I are doing as many stroller walks in the evenings as possible.
I am feeling lots of movement, and it's one of my favorite parts of pregnancy. I am to the point now that I can even see him moving around in there on my belly, and it's such an amazing sight and feeling. I feel him a lot at night, and it's such a sweet feeling to fall asleep and wake up to. Sleep is good for me. I wake up to potty around 5 or 6 am but doing great otherwise. I fall asleep the second my head hits the pillow at night.
I crave sweets much more this time, but I really just like food in general. Cantaloupe and watermelon are essentials at our house at all times. And I love yogurt! There have been a few times when I have craved a hamburger, and Caleb happily indulges me. I definitely feel worse after eating anything fried or greasy so I try to limit that as much as possible. Sometimes I just need some Zaxby's though.
I though it was only appropriate to have my 25/26 week bump pic with my other pregnant friends. Alyssa is 23 weeks and Lacey is 16 weeks (I think). It's so much fun to be pregnant with friends! I love these girls, and I can't wait for our babies to be best friends!
